Field Placement (HURM)

Field placement (FP) consists of the student working with an organization's human resources staff, completing a variety of objectives, and obtaining valuable insights into the workings of an HR department. Students set individual learning objectives and carry out projects, assignments, and tasks as defined by their field placement supervisor. The employer's work assignments and the student's learning objectives are discussed and confirmed in a field placement contract at the start of the experience. The student's performance is monitored during their placement and is formally reviewed at the conclusion of the course by their on-site supervisor. Students are expected to complete the required number of hours (200 or 5 full-time weeks) of related Human Resources work at the field placement site to obtain credit for this course. To be eligible to enrol and participate in this course, students must successfully complete all courses in 1st and 2nd semester and obtain a GPA of 2.0 or greater. Students who are unable to participate in the field placement course may seek prior approval from the Dean or Associate Dean to submit a Capstone project by enrolling in HCAP 6200 through Continuing Education. Student must apply for and receive approval for this consideration prior to enrolling in this course. An additional tuition charge may apply.
